Whitworths 6 Eynesbury Rovers 1
THE 6-1 scoreline is beginning to haunt Eynesbury as they conceded half a dozen for the third time this term.
The Hall Road side have now gone five league games without a win and have conceded 26 goals in seven games. Defensive troubles are at the root of Eynesbury's form - they have kept just one clean sheet all season and have the second leakiest defence.

The visitors made a bright start as they looked to build on last week's 2-2 draw against the same opponents but poor defending from a corner opened the floodgates. After that Whitworths never looked likely to lose their 100 per cent home record and had built up a 4-0 lead by half time as Eynesbury toiled.
A well-worked free-kick from Rovers pulled a goal back on 67 minutes through Barry Albone but by that time a Rob Foster hat-trick had Whitworths out of sight.

Foster grabbed his fourth of the game in the 75th minute as Eynesbury struggled to cope with the pacy opposition attackers.
Rovers manager Dean Shipp said: "We were defensively found wanting with a lack of pace a problem for us. We took St Ives - who are doing well in the division above us - to extra time in the week but this performance summed up our season in that you never know which Eynesbury Rovers are going to turn up."
Shipp's men play host to mid-table Rothwell Corinthians at Hall Road on Saturday.
